DAILY REMINDERS & LINK-UPS: Introductions & Diversity

6:00 AM Tif Sweeney 37 Comments


Today we kick off the 2016 event of Armchair BEA!  Welcome to our 7th year of celebrating Book Expo America (BEA) from the comfort of our own homes.  We have another great year planned for you, and hope you all have a great time chatting with all of our other participants, getting a special view of the BEA Blogger Conference and Book Expo America, and getting a chance to win a lot of great prizes.

Every day, we will have a special linky for you to share your own posts for our daily topics.  It is a great place for other book lovers to stop by and visit your contributions, and we do recommend that you list your link in a very specific way to help others know which conversation you are participating in (see more info below).

In addition, we will also share a quick reminder of what to expect for the day, including any Twitter parties and the Instagram challenges.  For quick reference, we will link up the daily topics in the Agenda & Schedule page.

Without further ado . . .

DAILY REMINDERS

8 PM EST Twitter Party: Introductions & Getting to Know You



LINK-UPS

On this day, introduce yourself! A specific list of introduction questions are posted here.

Our secondary topic focuses on diversity in books and the publishing industry. Whose voices do we see? Whose voices do we need more of? Where do we find representation lacking and what can we as bloggers do to address that? What about negative or stereotypical representation?


HOW TO LINK-UP

Please use the following format when linking up:

Name @ Blog Name - Daily Topic Represented For example: Sally @ Armchair BEA - Introductions OR Sally @ Armchair BEA - Introductions & Diversity

Please use only permalinks (links going directly to the designated post) when linking up. If you link directly to your home page, your link will be removed.
